41 Days of Drinks (day 25)

• This is the latest entry in a daily feature that is running through New Year's Eve. To provide it, I combed through all sorts of sources -- my own archives, bar books, distillers' ideas, etc. -- even press releases from breathless PR people seeking to get their clients' products mentioned.

Here's a holdover cocktail from the early part of this young century, usually popular with the younger imbibers then and still popular with the under-40s now. Forget the silly name, and concentrate on the luscious ingredients.

Incidentally, there is a non-alcoholic version called The Tim Tebow that is a reference to the quixotic quarterback known more for his reluctance to be involved in premarital sex than for his National Football League success, of which he had little.

SEX ON THE BEACH


⅔ ounce peach schnapps
1⅓ ounces vodka
1⅓ ounces cranberry juice
1⅓ ounces orange juice

Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake, then strain into a highball glass filled with fresh ice. (To make a Tebow, substitute peach purée for the schnapps and vodka.)
